The Putnam Museum’s exhibition, “Liberated Voices, Changed Lives,” showcases how technology provided more time for women to work on the suffrage movement which led to the ratification of the 19th amendment on August 26,1920. This amendment gave some women the right to vote in the United States.Impact: Quad Cities Women’s Fight for the Vote
